    This was posted @ the army recently.

    EDDIE SITS DOWN AND GIVES THE DIRT ON THE CURRENT SITUATION
    This is the gods honest truth. My drummer ran into Eddie at Vizen sushi in the valley and asked
    him for an autograph. What transpired afterwards is so mind blowing that it took a full hour just
    to sink in. Eddie invited him to sit at his table and have some saki and talk. Eddie was VERY EAGER
    to discuss Roth and the current tour. Before I say what was relayed to me, just let me say that I,
    along with everyone at this site, have assumed that Ed and Al were to blame for the lack of a
    reunited Van Halen. From what I have learned, this is not the case. Eddie said that after $320,000
    in legal fees and 8 months (the past 8 months!) , it was our man Dave who killed it. According to
    my friend, who shall remain nameless, Eddie has been writing with Roth in mind and attempting
    to get the original line up together for an albulm and tour. The negotiations were through lawyers
    and not person to person. It was this week that Ed finally gave up. He is FURIOUS that Dave took
    a coverband on the road w/Sammy when, according to him, =VH= were willing to do it. He also
    said that Hagar didn't cross his mind as far as getting that line up back together. His quote about
    Dave is as follws, "He hates me because he needs me" I hate to say it, but I believe him. My friend
    is as big a =VH= fan as I am and was so shocked to hear this that he was stuttering when he
    called me tonight. Daves' ego seems to have gotten the better of him. Everybody keep in mind
    that this comes directly from Ed, and we know he can "embelish" with the best of them, so take
    it with a grain of salt. He has been (get ready for this) helping Limp Bizcut write for their new
    record, out of sheer boredom, because he knows that there is no new singer option, no Dave,
    and DEFINATELY no Sam or Gary. He said," I'm an artist. I know what I want to do and I know
    what our fans want, and it kills me that I can't do it" I don't know what else to say other than,
    HOLY FUCK! Flame me if you want, but I swear on my fathers' grave that this is the truth as
    told to me by one of my oldest and closest freinds. I'm sorry to bring such bad news, but I see
    the level of devotion here, and if anyone deserves to know the truth, we do. Let's hope they can
    turn it around.

    Take it for what you will, but it's an entertaining read......up until the Limp Bizkit part......

    Well it's been a while since we've had a good rumour up in these parts. Entertaining to read, all very plausible, but like all the rest, I just don't believe it. Although, I could see Dave squashing the reunion just out of spite so he could do this Sam and Dave thing. I also agree with the "he hates me because he needs me" thing. It's probably pissing Dave off to no end that he has to play all VH material and tour with Sam before anyone will even pay any attention to him. I just don't see Eddie spilling his guts to a stranger in a sushi bar, sorry.

    Eddie was eager to talk to a total stranger about Van Halen and DLR??? I find it tough to believe.

    Don't wanna call you a liar, guy.....but so many rumors have graced this forum in the past. This one's a ten on the bullshit scale.

    Wow, this was posted at the Army? Was the poster executed yet?

    Ok, Brian.

    First, why do you think I put it in "RUMORS"?!?!?!?!?

    Second, at the bottom of the post I said "Take it for what you will....but it's an entertaining read". Nothing more.

    The dude got flamed big time over at the army where it was posted. I just put it here because it was, yes, you guessed it, a VH rumor.

    I know you're not calling me a liar, dude. But I grew up on a dairy ranch in CA. I know the bs when I smell it.

    After Roth said on the Howard Stern Show that he wouldn't mind doing a porno with Valeire Bertineli and calling it "Innapropriatley Touched By An Angel" Do you honestly beleive that Eddie would want Roth back again?

    Hecubus, I have a question for you buddy.

    When your friend spoke to Eddie, did he mention the name of the Sushi place that they went to?

    Was is on Ventura Blvd or on Coldwater Canyon and on what exact day was this?

    Please don't give me the crap that you can't say where or when and can't remeber what day it was.

    There are a few things that are conflicting with your story.

    Let me know.

    Thanks!

    Okay, everybody.

    Just for clarification, this isn't my original post. I just came across it at the army & threw it over here in the Rumors page.

    Don't know the dude who did or his friend who claims to have met Eddie. Just thought I'd post it because it had some entertainment value. I think the story does have holes all over it, but who the hell knows anymore?

    I live in NorCal, so I couldn't tell you where the hell it was or what sushi joint they were in because I'm not familiar with SoCal & no specific names were posted (another hole in the story).

    And Blotch, after re-reading the post, I think the name of the sushi place was Vitzen or something.....

    If it is true... It just takes us right back to 1985. The old He quit, no he was fired routine.
    Eddie saying it was Dave, could be nothing more than Ed's interpretation of what happened.

    It really means absolutly nothing if it is true.

    Believe it or not, but this guy has been proven by Elvis (at the Army) to be a musician and he gave his name and number and everything. This is one of those rumors that seems to have credibility to it, but I hope Ed isn't drinking anymore. The news wouldn't surprise me...Wouldn't you try to make Limp Bizkit a little better if you were the greatest guitarist in the world? Okay, maybe not, but why not make something good out of crap...I honestly think Ed would be able to do it...lol...God, I'm crazy.
